Reflex Marine announced it was awarded Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) development member status.

LEEA is the representative body for the lifting industry. Having surpassed the LEEA technical audit, the marine transfer company will benefit from access to LEEA’s high quality training and qualifications, independent auditing and accreditations as well as expert technical advice and representation.

With the industry increasingly looking at improving safety practices, LEEA is a powerful voice for the lifting industry and is actively involved in the development of national and international standards and regulations.

The accreditation is timely with the recent release of Reflex Marine’s brand new product range: the FROG-XT, designed to address all of the main risks involved in marine personnel transfer. The range was designed and built with the client in mind and has been developed with more than 20 years of experience, over 800 transfer devices operating globally, and with an estimated one million safe transfers performed using the capsules every year.

Reflex Marine said it is now looking to gain full membership of LEEA within the next two years and further expand the reach of the LEEA accreditation to that of its training courses.
